good morning to you. i'm richard lui. great britain remains in a frenzy this morning after the birth of the royal baby. now the world is anxiously awaiting the first glimpse of mom, dad and baby. here's nbc's danielle leigh. >> reporter: good morning. and there are crowds outside of buckingham palace, despite the rain right now. that is because people want to see a special changing of the guard ceremony today. scotland guard is playing congratulations for the new prince. also that medical bulletin still on display and everyone wants to get a picture. when we last checked, the wait was more than two hours long. excitement here is on high. well wishers crammed around the gates at buckingham palace into the morning. many raised their glasses to the new prince. >> oh, yeah, just in time to burst the bubbles. >> i could not be more excited if i tried. >> reporter: for hours, a golden easel held the image everyone was coming to see.

4:03 am
editor kathryn mayor about what we can expect in the coming days. >> what we're going to see is not only a great deal of excitement and a great deal of anchors interviewing each other and all of that, we are now moving into speculation about the departure of the baby, where the baby will be kept for the first few days because the apartment that william and kate are going to move into isn't ready yet. and there's a huge amount of speculation about the possibility of the baby being looked after at the maternal grandparents' house. so in other words, not starting royal life in a royal palace, but in a normal, if very affluent house in bucklebury. and then there's the question, obviously, the name. there are many things that we can discuss and speculate about. and the one thing you can be sure of is that we will. >> we love it. it's so exciting to us as we
4:04 am
watch right now. the cameras in front of lindo wing. one of the questions may be, when will we get the name? will it happen when they come out? when will they come out? and what might she be wearing? >> well, to take those questions in reverse, whoever or whatever designer she's wearing is likely to have a very happy day, shall we say. i am sure that some thought has gone into this. my guess is that it won't be anything incredibly expensive because one of the things that she has done quite carefully is to wear high street, you know, main street chain stuff so that she chimes better with the public. her hair dresser has already gone in. she's enough of a celebrity that she will have been made ready for her appointment. it should be really quite soon from what we're hearing. and they will give the cameras some chance to get ready because
